resolv.cfg (Resolver configuration file)
INtime Help


The resolver(3) is a set of routines in the C library which provide access to the Internet Domain Name System. The resolver configuration file contains information that is read by the resolver routines the first time they are invoked by a process. The file is designed to be human readable and contains a list of keywords with values that provide various types of resolver information.

On a normally configured system this file should not be necessary. The only name server to be queried will be on the local machine, the domain name is determined from the host name, and the domain search path is constructed from the domain name.

The different configuration options include:

The domain and search keywords are mutually exclusive. If more than one instance of these keywords is present, the last instance will override.

The keyword and value must appear on a single line, and the keyword (e.g. nameserver) must start the line. The value follows the keyword, separated by white space.


/etc/resolv.cfg The resolv.cfg file resides in %INTIMECFG%/{nodename}/etc


INtime does not support NIS.


The resolv.cfg file format appeared in 4.3BSD.
